The workshop aims to demonstrate the value of Earth observation data to climate-resilient development through a series of presentations, discussions, and hands-on training.
During the workshop the EO4SD Climate Resilience cluster will:
- Provide valuable insights into how IFIs and their client states can use Earth observation data to support climate-resilient development;
- Discuss stakeholder needs and requirements, especially with regards to projects on the African continent;
- Provide applicable and useful information about Copernicus Sentinel data and services, which offers full, free and open access;
- Showcase the proposed services of the EO4SD Climate Resilience cluster and how they can be used (e.g. drought monitoring, wetland monitoring, ecosystem evaluation, flooding, soil erosion, etc.);
- Offer a training session about the EO4SD Climate Resilience platform, including downloading data, visualizing it, and creating of customized products (e.g. water quality indexes, vegetation indexes, etc.).
